Become A Donor

Donors give to the Playhouse on an annual basis, and there are different levels of giving from $50 to $2,500+.  All patrons are listed in our mainstage show playbills, and receive a special invitation to our patron events.  Additional benefits are given for higher tier levels of support, including complimentary tickets to a show of your choice.  Patrons may be individuals, families, groups, or companies.  Visit our Donor page for more details.

Become A Corporate Sponsor

Corporate Sponsors typically sponsor a specific show in our season - we feature 5 "main-stage" productions, in addition to smaller class productions performed by the students in our School of Theatre programs.  There are varying levels of sponsorship from $500 to $10,000. In addition to the sponsorship benefits for the specific show of your choice, there are benefits throughout the year, such as ad space in the playbill for an additional 4 shows.  Interested companies should visit the Corporate page for more details.
